Last year, I wrote about the Top Ten Benefits to Being Single on Valentine’s Day. This year, I don’t need that list, though it would seem from my search statistics that there are some who still do…
I thought it’d be fun to review the list from last year with this year’s perspective. If you’re looking for consolation, this is not the place for you. Go to the link above. NOW.
Number 10. I’m not really worried about being dumped on the day after Valentine’s Day. Or Valentine’s Day, which apparently is a more popular dumping day.
Number 9. My significant other has some pretty amazing eyes. And we have yet to fall into a Bermudan Liger Trap.
Number 8. If the good Lord had intended for men to forget special days, He wouldn’t have put calendars on our phones.
Number 7. I still can’t dress up real nice and take my girlfriend to a nice restaurant. Fail. The reason this year is that I’m in a different state, but the not-going-out-to-dinner is still as lame as it was last year. Except that last year I tried to enjoy it.
Number 6. Why talk about how lame girls are? Girls are pretty cool. Especially one girl in particular. (Yes, the girl in the picture).
Number 5. I would never buy my girlfriend a Gus the Trout Valentine’s day card. EVER. Do they even make those?
Number 4. I hope I haven’t overdone things. Oh well. Who cares?
Number 3. I bought candy for my girlfriend, not for me. And that was a lot more fun.
Number 2. My girlfriend doesn’t like Twilight. Score. But now that I’m not single, I have a much wider range of movies I can justify watching…
1. The relationship of my dreams by next valentine’s day? Maybe a relationship isn’t as important as the person you’re in it with…
I like you, Kristen.
To all my friends whose facebook status says “In a relationship,” I love you and I’m so happy for you.
To all my single friends, I love you, and keep it real. Forgive me if this seems like gloating. I’m just being thankful… ‘Cause God is awesome and this Valentine’s day He’s given me a beautiful wonderful girlfriend. Thanks, Dad.
